Busy week open thread.


It's been busy. What's up? Try not to shoot anyone in the face.

A mere 94F in tokyo today with a paltry 75% humidy. I'm sipping a martini while Mrs. Rev. Paperboy lays down with the kiddies....a full day off tomorrow before the madness of the Japanese upper house election. I really should take advantage of the lull to post something on my own blog about Iraq or Gonzales or Rick Hillier vs. Gordon O'Connor. Or finish reading the soon to be released William Gibson novel I have to review next week, or clean the damn kitchen, but I have a half full glass of icy Beefeater and Charlie Parker's "Night in Tunisia" just came around on the ipod stereo shuffle. Ahhhhhh.....

I'm sort of following all that contempt of Congress stuff, but they seem to deliberately be moving at such a slow pace that - HEY, A QUAIL! (BLAMM!)

Oops. Well, at least the guy I shot apologized...

What's up?..*ahem*...prickly heat. I'm so uncomfortable I just may shoot someone in the face.

I only ever get this when I come to Toronto.

how hot/humid is it in the extended golden horseshoe area at the moment?
I remember how we used to get a week of mounting humidity leading up to a big thunderstorm (usually falling on the #%$&$ weekend) in Hamilton-Guelph-Waterloo area. After ten years of Tokyo summers Toronto would seem like spring to me...

Adam C,
After all the shit the Bush-Cheney gang has pulled over the last few years I find it incredible that they could be undone by a few contempt of congress charges, but I think they might be. Just wait until Bush pardons Harriet Miers to keep her from going to jail for contempt and you will hear the public howl for his head.

So CC, what was so busy about this week?

Rev;

That's how it has to start, as far as I can see. To do an investigation, they need access to the information. If they can't get the information, they have to charge people with contempt.

I have to think that if Bush started pardoning people for contempt of Congress most reasonable people would see clear grounds for impeachment.

Mostly, though, I think they're willing to go so slowly the next election will come first...

Watergate seems fairly paltry compared to some of the egregious shit this bunch has pulled off over the years. Let's not forget that Al Capone was brought down by tax evasion charges. Sometimes it's the small stuff that yets you in the end.

...which is unfortunate since there is so little time left to ask "what the president/vice~president/Karl Rove knew, and when did they know it?"

seriously, some of these bastard better be going to jail and sooner rather than later. GWB should not be allowed to just go back to clearing brush in Crawford for the rest of his life.

I don't frankly care if the charge that lands them in court to start with is double parking, as soon as you get one of these fuckers on the stand, the perjury charges will just keep on coming. Most of them couldn't tell the truth if asked which horizon the sun came up on in the morning.

Not particularly hot (25) but still very humid (90%).

Been enjoying myself making the temple vein in some asshole troll's head explode on NewsHounds.

Typical bullshit. Blames Clinton and Kerry for everything and tried to malign Kerry's military service while supporting Bush who couldn't be bothered to SHOW UP for military service on the deferment his daddy got for him because he was too busy drinking.

He's so utterly convinced of his own intellectual and moral superiority that those pesky things like 'facts' don't mean anything to him.

So I keep rubbing his nose in it.

Trollbaiting should be an olympic sport. =)

I noticed that PTBCanadian has been removed from the Blogging Tories for not having a link [when apparently he did].
